When Give 'Em Hell, Harry was first produced on the stage in the mid-1970s, a number of factors contributed to the popularity and success of the one-man show about President Harry S. Truman. One factor was James Whitmore, whose performance, critics agreed, evoked the former president to a remarkable degree. Other factors were Truman's recent death, his comparatively recent presidency and the ongoing national trauma of Watergate, which made the prospect of a plain-spoken, honest man in the White House undeniably appealing.

A Northeast Philadelphia man who helped rob banks across the Midwest, allegedly to finance right-wing groups, has agreed to plead guilty to federal robbery charges and testify against his accomplices. Kevin McCarthy, 19, a member of the self-styled Aryan Republican Army, testified Monday in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, that he had participated in a series of heists with Scott A. Stedeford, an Ardmore native, and Peter Langan of Columbus. McCarthy, who was living with his grandmother in the Bustleton section before his May arrest, said he had signed an agreement to plead guilty to robbery and related charges in a case involving about 20 stickups across seven states between November 1993 and last December.

THE FLYERS WIVES gently ushered Christopher Sok, 17, and his family out of their Oxford Circle rowhouse Friday and put them in a hotel until Sunday, when they will return to freshly-painted walls, refinished floors, new bathrooms, new furniture, even a newly-sodded front lawn. The Flyers Wives' "Building Hope for Kids" project started as a bedroom makeover for Sok, who is receiving cancer treatments at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children. But the project mushroomed into a whole-house makeover for Sok's family - his mom, Morleka Sok; his dad, Yim Ev; his sister Thyda; his niece Nina, 3; and his nephew Troy, 1 1/2. A recent Daily News visit to the house revealed brightly-painted walls in blues and earth tones, beautiful wood floors, a firmly locked door to Christopher's bedroom and no furniture anywhere.

A second suspect linked to a white supremacist bank robbery gang responsible for at least 22 heists in seven states was arrested yesterday by FBI agents in Philadelphia. Kevin McCarthy, 18, of Colebrook Road near Artwood Drive, was jailed pending a hearing next week. McCarthy, an unemployed guitar player who has no known criminal record, is charged with participating in the robbery of the Magna Bank of Bridgeton, Mo., on Aug. 16, 1995. McCarthy's arrest follows the arrest Wednesday of Scott Anthony Stedeford, a guitarist, drummer and singer from Ardmore.

When Colleen Dewhurst came through town last year in a one-woman show about the crazed widow of Eugene O'Neill, she was asked what had attracted her to the play. She said she thought of it as an annuity, an insurance policy, something she could count on to support her in her old age. Which is good news for her, but what about us? One-actor plays, especially when they are based on "historical figures," often tend to be nothing more than a pasting together of old news clippings and letters and speeches.

Love or Money, shelved since 1988, is the kind of painfully laughless romantic comedy that was made more frequently when investors looking for major losses could use films as tax shelters. If only for diminishing the number of lousy movies made with sheltered money, the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was good for something. Love or Money, the story of a young, handsome, poor, unprincipled real estate broker who falls for a young, beautiful, rich, principled marine biologist, manages to be heartless and bankrupt.

Director Andrew Davis has never won the Palm D'Or or an Academy Award. Doesn't need them. His achievements, unheralded though they are, speak for themselves, and they say he's one of our best living directors. Davis has already ascended cinema's Olympus. He has done so by making two movies - "Under Siege" and "Above the Law" - that make Steven Seagal look like a good actor. Anyone who appreciates movie-making, or Seagal, knows the extraordinary artistry this requires. Sadly, Davis - a low-profile, B-movie director with a long resume of fun action movies - seems to crave more resounding validation, even after the high-profile success of "The Fugitive.

It's been much more than a blue moon since we've had more than an occasional glittering show-business name come by and set for a spell. The famine is about to end with a vengeance. Commencing one week from tomorrow, with "An Evening with Tammy Grimes," barely a week will pass without a familiar name to caress upstream on the Delaware. After all too many seasons of amateur night, there will once again be a reason for chugging on up the river to the Bucks County Playhouse, the stately gray lady of New Hope.

Wissahickon's baseball players want to make sure they are taken seriously. The Trojans topped visiting Plymouth-Whitemarsh, 5-2, yesterday, improving their Suburban One League American Conference record to 6-1 (they are 8-3 overall) and maintaining their lead in the Freedom Division. Wissahickon won behind Don Hooton's five-hit, 10-strikeout pitching gem and last-out relief from Drew Moyer. "A win over P-W is a big thing for this program," said Hooton, who is 3-0 in conference games.

Yesterday was Kevin McCarthy's turn. Fourteen months ago, he sat reading on the Long Island Rail Road when gunfire erupted. He was shot in the head. Six people died. Eighteen others were wounded. McCarthy lost 10 percent of his brain, was unable to walk or talk for months. The man who had been seated next to him died in his lap. That was his father, Dennis. Yesterday, McCarthy, with that odd gait that marks a man who needs a cane, limped to the witness stand, took his oath, lowered himself into the chair, and testified about that day of loss.

To Paul Holmgren, size does matter. The Flyers general manager has assembled a defensive corps that is one of the biggest in the NHL. The eight defensemen in training camp, on the average, are 6-foot-21/2 and 219 pounds - and that average is reduced because of the smallish Kimmo Timonen (5-10, 194). Since last February, Holmgren has added bulk by acquiring Nick Grossmann (6-4, 230) and Luke Schenn (6-2, 229) in trades, and signing Kurtis Foster (6-5, 225). Braydon Coburn (6-5, 220)

It sounds hard to believe, but more than 10 percent of the NHL's regular-season schedule has come and gone for the Flyers. With a 4-4-1 record, there have been ups and downs, bumps and bruises, and brief flashes of brilliance. Like the rest of the team, the Flyers' offense has hardly been consistent. Consider this: In their last two wins (Tuesday night against Buffalo and Saturday night against Toronto), the Flyers' 11 combined goals accounted for 44 percent of the team's total scoring output through nine games.

Chris Pronger is not looking for sympathy. He just wants to feel like himself again. Through his first seven games this season after having his right knee surgically repaired in the offseason, Pronger hasn't been, well, Pronger. While you would not be able to tell on the stat sheet - Pronger's plus/minus is 3 - he doesn't quite look like the stalwart who guided the Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals last season. He acknowledged yesterday that his knee still isn't at 100 percent. "Did anyone say I was 100 percent?"

Boiled down to its essence, the question Peter Laviolette delivered to the Flyers when he succeeded John Stevens as coach on Dec. 4 was posed like this: Would you rather work hard with the puck or work hard without it? It's safe to say the hockey player who would prefer the latter has yet to be born. "It's a lot more fun for a hockey player to work hard with the puck than without it," Kevin McCarthy said. McCarthy is more than one of the assistant coaches to Laviolette. McCarthy is his aide-de-camp.

Carolina Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette agreed to a 5-year contract with the team yesterday, less than a week after leading the franchise to its first Stanley Cup. "Peter's coaching helped bring our team together to win hockey's ultimate prize last season," Hurricanes president and general manager Jim Rutherford said. "His aggressive, up-tempo style of play allows for success under the league's new rules, and his leadership has yielded great results for his teams throughout his career.

The national road race that sends scavengers in search of little-known spots returns to Philadelphia on Saturday. Competitors who think best on their feet could end up in New Orleans - with a shot at winning $50,000. The challenge began at a party two years ago. Kevin McCarthy needed something fun to celebrate his 12-year-old daughter's birthday.

Mark Thomas, once a spellbinding, hate-spouting national leader in the white supremacist movement, was sentenced yesterday to eight years in prison by a federal judge in Philadelphia for recruiting young men to rob banks for the cause. Sighing heavily and sobbing before U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter, Thomas, a self-proclaimed Christian minister, a past grand chaplain of the Klu Klux Klan and the former head of the Pennsylvania Aryan Nation, renounced racism. He also expressed remorse for ruining the lives of young people who read his writings, heard him preach, and took seriously his Bible-thumping hate-mongering about Jews, blacks and other minorities.
